A Philadelphia man was arrested for allegedly helping Occupy Wall Street protesters dump human waste into various locations in Lower Manhattan.
Surveillance video captured Occupy Wall Street demonstrators dragging containers of human urine and feces to an open-air plaza at the corner of Nassau and Cedar Streets just before 8 p.m. last Wednesday. They are then seen pouring the waste down the stairs.
Police say a separate incident happened the same night around 20 minutes later. One of the suspects, also captured on surveillance video, entered a Chase ATM vestibule on Water Street and poured the human waste into the vestibule.

A witness provided a license plate number of the van used to transport the waste. This led to the arrest of Jordan Brook Amos, 25, of Philadelphia who is the registered owner of the vehicle. He was apprehended last Friday on Wall Street and charged with unlawful possession of noxious matter and aggravated unlicensed operation of a Motor Vehicle.
Police also say they recovered a stun gun from inside the van.
